Biological Recording 101 for Rangers is a 90-minute webinar introducing the science of species recording.

Learners are taught why recording wildlife in the countryside and greenspaces is beneficial and how it can help with managing these sites on a day-to-day and long-term basis.

Webinar attendees will be taken through some of the do's and don'ts of biological recording and be provided with guidance regarding what data should be prioritised so they can convert their wildlife observations into high-quality species occurrence data.

Rangers will then be shown how this data can be submitted to both local and national datasets to maximise the impact of their biological records.

The webinar will consist of a 60-minute presentation from biological recording specialist Keiron Derek Brown, followed by a 30-minute live audience Q&A session with the webinar tutor.

This event is delivered jointly by the Biological Recording Company and Countryside Management Association.
